- Lock yourself in a closet.
- Sew your mouth shut.
- Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
At Cary Family Dental we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our patients.
Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of tooth decay, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at your dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and observing appropriate oral hygiene are strong indicators for oral health.
We’re not here to tell our patients to forego sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you, just be sure and brush correctly. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.
When it comes to caring for Cary, North Carolina’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Cary Family Dental is here for you. Services such as dental crowns and sedation dentistry really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with cosmetic dentistry or dental implants, then we’ve done our job!
